Research Workshop (50 minutes)
Pre-Workshop Homework: Research Notebook
In this workshop students learn how to search Kennedy Library’s databases strategically and identify the best sources to use for their research assignment. Students should have a topic in mind and complete the Research 101 Tutorial & Notebook prior to the workshop so that we can answer students’ individual research questions during the workshop. The Tutorial provides an introduction to the steps of the research process in six self-guided online lessons. The Notebook guides students through the process of exploring and searching for sources on their chosen topic.
English 149 Workshop (50 minutes)
In this workshop we provide instruction on databases and search strategies tailored to English 149 assignments. It is recommended that students are directed to the Research 101 Tutorial if they have not received library instruction in another course.
